SOUTH SHORE RESIDENTIAL STREET - UNIDENTIFIED THREE - FROM GROWING CHICAGO SITE

 

I think urban design just does not come with more grace and serene qualities than this. Scenes like this were part of a number of Chicago neighborhoods in their prime (and still are in some cases) including Hyde Park, Kenwood, and several neighborhoods on the North Side.

  1. I know exactly where this is. I used to live a block away. The photographer is facing west on the 2700 block just east of South Shore Dr on 73rd St. The lake is a few yards behind him/her. It is a dead end street that had a low concrete wall and a few cement “steps” down to the water and the pilings of an old pier. The tall building is The Coastland on the SW corner of 73rd and South Shore Dr.

  2. This is where i grew up from 1966 until 1997. It was great growing up on the lakefront! The address is 2662 East 73rd Street. I have so many pictures of the lake washing up on our street. We used to have a nice beach down the steps from here and the water rose so high that it washed away all of the beaches and pilings. The Army Core of Engineers installed breakwaters here about 12 years ago to stop erosion on the street and the 2666 East 73rd Street building which is now partially in the lake! I thank you for all of the memories
